After much speculation and commenting on a few of our posts, the apparent new owner of 1520 Arrott Street has checked in with a comment. According to “vern new property owner”:
it is unfare to judge me or wat im doing if u have not stopped to talk with me. That was the the past let it go this is a change for the good
There’s no signage posted on obvious renovating; if it’s going back to a bar, there’s no posting of the liquor license. Vern, would you please check in with the Frankford Civic and let them know what’s going on with the building. We’d all love to frankfly. According to their webiste, you can reach them at email@example.com and at (215) 821-9124.
It would also be awesome if you could check in with Jason Dawkins in Counselwoman Sanchez’s office, who seems to be running point with this civic issue. His number is 215-686-3448.
And I’d really like any contacted parties to keep The Frankford Gazette in the loop so we can accurately relay information to concerned residents. The worse thing for this neighborhood is rumor and inuendo. We’re at firstname.lastname@example.org.
